A lovely surprise in the garden this morning

There are poppies in flower and more to come! I wonder if they realise it is November and it is quite cold??

    Obviously not Sara image - are they the native wild-type poppies or one of the cultivated vareties?

  • They are wild ones, seeded themselves from this summers showing, we are having frosty mornings now so they are such a pleasure to see.

    Isnt it great when that happens? I have just taken a stroll round the garden in the sun and found a rose has started to flower again.

    There is always something new to see if you find the time to do nothing in the garden. It is a much underated pastime.

    I can see buds on my David Austin Mayflower rose from my kitchen window image

  • Popppies growing here in south Wales too. Not as large as in the summer but it's there in the front garden, defying the cold northerly wind. Also saw a bee and a butterfly today. Bizarre.
